Woodward fuel and hydraulic pumps

Fuel and Hydraulic Pumps for Small Industrial and Aeroderivative Gas Turbines

Woodward fuel and hydraulic pumps leverage a long pedigree, but also include advanced technologies addressing fuel quality and system optimization issues.

For over 50 years, Woodward has supplied hydraulic pumps integrated into mechanical governors. This pedigree was leveraged to design pumps used on various aeroderivative turbines providing hydraulic system pressure for variable geometry and bleed valve applications. These highly reliable and durable pumps are still used on today’s most advanced turbines.

In the last 20 years, Woodward has developed several fuel pump platforms, beginning with small aircraft turbines. Today, these platforms have evolved to include land based turbines up to 100 MW. The robust design of these fuel pumps allows them to be used on a wide range of fuels and integrated with various motors.

For aircraft applications, Woodward has invested in research toward a variety of different advanced system and pump concepts from variable displacement pumps to variable speed motor driven pumps. Woodward’s research and design teams are ready and able to provide in depth systems analysis to determine the best solutions for a given turbine design.
